A word from our partners
‘Most of the personal data that makes up our online identity is held by a handful of corporations and institutions, and sold to the highest bidder. Web3 provides the foundation to build a network of data-sovereign and financially autonomous participants. Owning a $handle is the very first step in getting back our right to our own identity, our own data, and our own sense of self.’
